Golden Marine Systems Offers Crucial Marina Preparedness Guidance Post-Hurricane Beryl

Moss Marina withstood Hurricane Ian

Golden Marine Systems offers hurricane preparedness tips for marinas post-Hurricane Beryl, emphasizing safety, infrastructure and effective communication.

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 10, 2024 / — As Hurricane Beryl, the first hurricane of the season, leaves a trail of devastation, Golden Marine Systems, a leading provider of marine infrastructure solutions, steps forward to offer crucial guidance on preparing marinas for the ongoing hurricane season. Drawing from extensive experience in the marine industry, the company emphasizes proactive measures to mitigate potential damage and ensure safety for coastal communities and marina operators.

Key Recommendations from Golden Marine Systems:
1. Develop a Comprehensive Emergency Plan: Create a detailed plan outlining procedures for securing the marina, evacuating vessels, and ensuring personnel safety. Regularly review and update the plan based on past experiences.
2. Secure Infrastructure: Inspect docks, piers, and other structures for wear or damage. Reinforce weak points and secure loose items to prevent them from becoming projectiles in high winds.

3. Secure Vessels: Ensure all vessels are properly secured with adequate lines and fenders. Consider relocating boats to safer locations or hauling them out of the water.

4. Remove Potential Hazards: Clear debris, including equipment, trash, and vegetation, to prevent hazards during storms.

5. Communicate Effectively: Maintain open communication with marina tenants, local authorities, and emergency agencies. Keep stakeholders informed and provide guidance on evacuation procedures.

6. Monitor Weather Conditions: Stay informed about approaching storms by monitoring forecasts from the National Hurricane Center and local authorities. Take proactive measures based on the latest information.

7. Prepare for Power Outages: Develop contingency plans for power outages, including backup generators and emergency lighting. Ensure essential equipment remains operational during power loss.

8. Stay Informed and Flexible: Remain vigilant throughout the hurricane season and adjust plans based on evolving weather conditions and guidance from authorities.

Michael Shanley, President of Golden Marine Systems, stresses the importance of proper preparation for minimizing hurricane impacts on marinas and ensuring safety. “One of the main things that happen in a storm situation that causes dock systems to fail is the piles not being high enough. When you get the storm surge, the dock systems simply float above the pile system and float off,” Shanley stated.

Golden Marine Systems’ commitment to supporting marinas and coastal communities is exemplified by their response to Hurricane Ian’s devastation in Southwest Florida. Their over-engineered products, including docks, gangways, boat lifts, and marine accessories, withstood the destruction, and the company played a key role in rebuilding marinas and restoring Fort Myers Beach to its natural beauty.
